Darth Maul. Grevious. Luke. Obi Wan. Wookies. And tons of fantastic Art. Out of the entire book one chapter kinda stinks. The Wat Tambor story kinda reminded me of Cheech Wizard or something. Not waht I thought Wat was going to look like in comics...
But thats it. The rest of the stories are fantastic! Loved the book. If you are a fan, and waiting patiently for Episode 3, this is a taste of things to come.
The Artist of Naboo - Not my cup of tea, this kind of work, but it would seem like a soothing drink for those who do appreciate the sort of art shown here.
Wat Tambor and the quest for the sacred eye of the Albino Cyclops - Hmmm. What can I say here. It's....interesting? Seems like something that will appeal to the Star Wars Tales audience. Me? I would have rather seen Wat Tambor being beaten senselessly by his own goons. He simply doesn't come across as a character worthy of some mystical journey. Then again, I should keep in mind that it is a Star Wars Tales type of tale. There's nothing sacred about a Confederacy [pawn].
Sithisis - The artist could have made it more clear as to whether or not the Sithisis fits in to the Star Wars timeline, and, if it does, then where. Great little Sith story nevertheless. Dialogue was not at all missed in this story and only made it cooler.
Entrenched - I liked it. But even with that opinion in mind it begs the following question: why is there a Hoth story in a work supposed to be centered around RotS? A story about Mon Mothma's son could have been appropriately placed before A New Hope, which could have shown some of the reasoning behind her becoming an Alliance leader in the first place. The seamless Hoth tie-in with its respective ending was neat, but not the best context, in my opinion.Read more ›
The book is definately worth buying if you are a fan of Star Wars and the good stories make up for the ones that are not so good.
***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS***
Sure we get a story about Darth Maul fighting Obi-Wan on Tattooine after his legs have been cut off and he now has mechanical legs. Later we get a story about the Trade Federation going to the wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk and the wookiees deciding to fight them. There are a few other stories that just make no sense like the story about the artist who kinda, sorta, not really saves Padme from something we never see. Seriously he doesn't really save her so much as just stalks her and obsesses over her.
There are other stories that are really just pointless like Palaptine fighting one of the giant worms from the Avengers movie, the head of the Techno Union Guild starring in what looks like a Tex Avery cartoon, and a story that looks like it belongs in Heavy Metal and stars what looks like an armored Larfleeze from the Green Lantern comics.
The only GOOD story in this comic is where we see that Mon Motha had a son that was stationed on Hoth and was killed during the battle. That actually fits into continuity and does make sense, however in the timeline we are told this comic takes place outside of the Star Wars continuity so they aren't really part of the saga.
***END SPOILERS*** ***END SPOILERS*** ***END SPOILERS***
What was the point of making this comic to begin with? It's not part of Star Wars continuity so nothing in this book actually happened and it's all just basically fan fiction.
This honestly isn't worth buying for anything other than the artwork, and the one good story from Hoth. Give this one a pass unless you can pick it up deeply discounted.

I bought this book for my 10year old son who'd lost his original copy. The first time he opened the cover the book came apart. The glue on the binding was still tacky. Read morePublished on May 14, 2009 by Diana A. Ramirez

This tpb has exceptional artwork. The stories contained therein can mostly be considered 'non-canon', but that doesn't make it any less an enjoyable read. Read morePublished on October 2, 2005 by M. Hatton
These are interesting tales, I especially liked the first one, but I wasn't all that impressed by the book overall. I suppose it's worth reading, but get a library copy. Read morePublished on September 9, 2005 by Julie
